We see the photo works of utopian landscapes contrasting a so called natural landscape. Questioning what kind of landscape we might be creating in the future Matthew Higgins  set out to create and collate a landscape from found and discarded objects. Experimenting with light, mood and scale the photographs have a literally timeless quality and one is not quite sure where or how to place them in context of time and space. They offer new and fantastical options for how we could imagine scenes that are utopian but that merge with the familiar.

They reflect and offer a fresh perspective for the scope of photography in art.  The juxtaposition between a utopian idea and the hand crafted from technological found debrit is intriguing  and I look forward to see more from this gifted artist.
